    I knew I should have printed it out, but on one of the many gunboards I visit, someone had a rather nice cover letter to be sent along with a copy of your C&R license to the dealer.

    Anyone know where its at or have a copy??

    Alot of these vendors now have email alerts, so it's a good idea to include your email addy.

    I'm with Chipperman here. I wouldn't waste a lot of time on a cover letter that's just going to end up in the can anyway.

    I think it's a good idea to enclose a cover letter to state you intent. Otherwise what is the dealer going to think on the other end about receiving your envelope with just the license inside? The dealer may think the obvious that it's someone new wanting to have their license on file. Or they may think you are trying to complete a transaction and the license will do that. Or if they think you want to be kept on file do you want a catalogue? Some people don't like junk mail and shop online, so does this new license mean the person does or doesn't want a catalogue? And if you are online, and many of the dealers are now too, the license doesn't have an e-mail address for the dealer to send their e-mail flyers to.

    Be smart, send a brief note with your license and tell the dealer what your intent is with sending your license. It will probably save time on their end so they can spend more time filling our orders. ;)

    Don't worry about that. The dealers who do business with C&R holders get dozens of license copies a day. They know what to do with them.

    My thinking exactly. I think I merely say "please place on file".

    I allways just send a note saying please place on file, and please send me your latest catolog. It has allways worked for me.

    I just send it in, no cover letter. They'll figure it out.
